    I didn't. I have no idea where the Etruscan language came from (east, west, north, south, or right where it was). All that is relatively certain is that it wasn't Indo-European. The transmission of...

    I was responding to the claim that the "DNA evidence is all in favour of the western origin of the Etruscans". I'm not arguing the opposite case, but just don't think it is a complete slam dunk. Nor...

    That might have been true later in Athens (under Pericles?), but Cleisthenes, considered to be the founder of Athenian democracy, was the son of Megacles (of the powerful Alcmaeonid family) and...

    Some R1b comes in during the Neolithic - same as early influx found in Iberia? Seems to have been submerged or diluted beyond detection, since there is no sign of it in the copper age.

    And whether yDNA strains were eliminated at the start (ethnic cleansing) or relegated to the sidelines and weeded out over time (due to privilege), the result is the same. Ultimately the information...

    Except there is no architectural evidence for such a migration at that time: Caucasus -> Syria. There is for a much shorter one: Bulgaria (Ezero) -> Troy I (related pottery).

    Yamnaya = Khvalynx (EHG) + CHG

    If the PIE population was roughly equal parts EHG/CHG, then terming the source of the CHG as the "Pre-PIE" would be illogical, in that at most it might be a Pre-PIE. On the other hand, EHG could be...

    Swedish neutrality, sitting out every war since 1814, probably has something to do with it. Not wasting the national treasure on useless wars meant all the more to share.
